Bloomsbury and Buzzfeed have revealed two new images from the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone illustrated edition, due for release in October. Check out a sketch of Harry, and an illustration of Hagrid on the enchanted motorbike below.
The deluxe illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling’s timeless classic will feature an exclusive pull-out double gatefold of Diagon Alley; intricate foiled line art by Jim Kay on a real cloth cover and slipcase; gilt edges on premium grade paper; head and tail bands and two ribbon markers. It is the ultimate must-have edition for any fan, collector or bibliophile. This edition will be sold exclusively from the Bloomsbury.com website until March 2016 when it will be made available to retail outlets.
Warner Bros. and Universal have announced plans to expand The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park by bringing it to Universal Studios in Hollywood. The park in Florida will also be “significantly expanded”.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling said of the decision, “I am delighted that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been so popular with fans since the opening in Orlando last year and I am sure that the teams at Universal and Warner Bros. will bring their expertise and attention to detail to Hollywood to make this new experience equally as exciting.”
